My local stealership had a 2011 wrx in for the weekend and I went for a great drive on some twisties with a fun loving salesman...great car and awesome fun...
I will be getting either the wrx or sti, but haven't figured that question out yet. I will be taking the car to the track 2x/year and occasional autox and therefore will surely feel the need to modify the suspension and bracing if I get the wrx.
I am wondering if I can justify the $8000 premium for the sti over the wrx. I realize that there is a world of difference, in power, suspension and brakes, but would it be necessary to upgrade brakes? Would pads and venting do?
For STI owners: Do you use/find benefit in the SI-drive? What about the dccd? It seems to be recommended to use the dccd in auto on pavement, so is that different than the wrx's setting? Does the wrx also share the torque split of 35:65 front to rear bias?
Any responses are welcome...thanks.
